Regardless of the type or size of an organization, one of the most common barriers to undertaking digital projects is the availability of funds. In this session, speakers from a variety of institutional settings (public library, museum, and university) will share their first-hand experiences and lessons learned in successfully applying for financial support to pursue digital projects of importance to their communities. Together, their experiences will provide a comprehensive exploration of the funding landscape, encompassing both small and large public grant programs at the state and national levels, as well as larger private foundation funds.
